Backcountry skier (Picture BC photo)
The Kootenay Rockies region is a dream for backcountry skiing and snowboarding.
Choose from five spectacular mountain ranges – the Monashees, Rockies, Selkirks, Purcells and Valhallas – and venture through terrain coated in up to 15m/50ft of snow annually.
There are endless options for off-piste skiing along the “Powder Highway.” Hire a backcountry ski guide for a day trip or overnight in the extensive network of backcountry huts and lodges. Some ski resorts offer backcountry ski courses and single-ride lift tickets.
Golden, Revelstoke, Kimberley, Fernie, Rossland and Nelson are some mountain towns near popular backcountry skiing areas.
